At this time, the Food Bank is still fully operational. As indicated in the new public health order that requires residents to stay home except for essential needs, food banks are an essential service similar to a grocery store, and we must continue to work to distribute food out in the community.
To protect the health of our volunteers, and staff, we have made changes to our warehouse volunteer program, for example, reducing the number of volunteers at each shift and cutting non-essential projects.
It’s understandable that there are concerns about volunteering at this point. And individuals should consider their own health and well-being before deciding whether or not to volunteer. We are closely monitoring the situation and we are in close contact with the SF Department of Public Health and are following their recommendations.
Please review these new guidelines from the City and County of San Francisco before volunteering with us.
With safety top of mind, we have reduced the capacity of all volunteer shifts. Thanks to the generosity of the community, many of our volunteer opportunities are full, but availability fluctuates daily. We continue to evaluate the needs of the community which are ever changing, and open new opportunities when appropriate to meet those needs.
To support those who no longer have access to food, the Food Bank is opening a number of pop-up pantries.
Shifts are offered at our warehouses in San Rafael and San Francisco. Currently we are packing senior boxes and building grocery bags for home delivery.
Rally your friends, coworkers, and family against hunger and help neighbors suffering in the wake of COVID-19!
We have some seasonal opportunities for you to volunteer at sites across our community by distributing food, raising awareness of our services and teaching about good nutrition.
